The Bondarenkos, Alona and Kateryna, winners of the doubles title at the Australian Open, are blogging from the Open Gaz de France in Paris this week. Here is a blog sample from the sometimes contentious sisters (Alona's comments are in italics):
People are always wondering if we get into arguments when we're travelling together, and the answer is, of course, yes. But we've improved. A few years ago we fought so much more but now I think we're used to being around each other all the time and we are a little older now, so we get along much better. And our fights are only for 30 minutes, maybe an hour, so they don't last that long.
I have to add that we maybe have small arguments every day, maybe a few times a day, but they're only about little things. And we didn't argue at all today. And we make up after so they don't last long. But it's always easier when we have somebody else with us, so we can fight with that person instead!
